How Long does it take to Climb Chimborazo?
This trip takes 2-3 days, the actual climb takes 7 hours but is done during the night, thus the minimum time you need is 2 days and 1 night.
Currently, most climbers are starting from Carrell refuge at 4800 m as conditions in the mountain, have been worsened due to the glacier melting, due to global warming, thus guides take the longer route to the glacier for the summit attack, we suggest at least a day prior for acclimatization to high altitude.
